A renowned educationist, Professor Stephen Adei has recommended entrance exams for Junior High School students to qualify them into Senior High Schools.
This recommendation is part of others he has been proposing as possible options the government could adopt as part of the roadmap for the opening of schools.
President Nana Akufo-Addo on March 15, 2020, directed the closure of schools to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
But concerns on when and how to reopen schools have dominated major discussions in recent times. The renowned educationist in a Citi News interview suggested that the entrance exams he is proposing for final year JHS students should be limited to two subjects.
“For the JHS, they are not that as significant. Now we basically have basic education school children in wholesale to the secondary level so theirs is not that difficult because we can do normal common entrance exams on only two subjects. We have done it before and it’s simple,” he said.
